i like your location, please answer all questions
Hi, these are the answer:
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). - My server is not located in my personal home
If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. - AWS
Yes, more African nodes would help achieving a more balanced geographic node distribution. Could you host a VPS at AWS meeting the minimum hardware requirements, including the specified GPU?
Hi, that’s great to hear. Would be happy to help add more nodes for this region. Can you share an approximate AWS instance type that would meet these specs?
I’m not familiar with AWS instances, I just mentioned AWS because it was your plan, and I was asking because I’m not sure it’ll be easy to find one with the required GPU (and if there is it might be rather expensive).
To be finally selected, I think the applicant should provide additional information, as asked by lonewolf.
It has to be clear that when reaching the final selection the applicant can and will join the network with the required HW / connection.
Needs to answer questions.
